. and, frankly, it's sad for someone who had a stature and a gravitas of john mccain. >> and i was going to say super pacts. but this just flopped. i think it's how republicans rolled back the clock on women. if we were remembering 2010, women did very well. but this year, they erased all of that. >> they decided to name one woman to the administrative committee. it was a housewife. >> yes, yes. but it was interesting. they went after women and, as jonathan said, then debate gays. it was a real contorted strategy: we're going to violate women openly and not debate gays and everyone marriage equality. >> think about it. the public opinion is moving away from opposition to gay rights. >> what i thought was very interesting and probably the worst plilt kal trend is in '88, there was a guy named brown that designed the dekawkis ad who came back with sicitizens unite. i think the worst trend was to take the lid off of the money, which was a right winged strategy that really backfired. it really drove them into the ground in the sense that i think that they thought they had bought ann election
with their families. >> john mccain congratulated kerry on his nomination and the republican from arizona says he will consider him as secretary of state but did not promise his support. >> my view on whether senator kerry should be secretary of state will not be based on difference of view. we had differences of view going back to 1991 when he said desert storm will fail but it's my view to carry out responsibilities. >> reporter: kerry kept quiet and hillary clinton wasn't able to make it to the white house at all. she is still recovering from the concussion that is preventing from testifying about what she knew before after and during the deadly attack in benghazi. >> heather: peter doocy in washington, thanks. >> gregg: last of the newtown school shooting victims has been laid to rest. hour earns attended services for three children. eight days after the gunman killed 26 women and children. since then, more than $2.6 million worth of condolences have poured into the official memorial fund. >> heather: gun control debate heating up in the wake of the connecticut school shooting, national rifle
suggestion. laura ingram called it an immaculate concussion. >> i think it's strange when john mccain had to give his medical history and high detail. i'm not interested in the details but the fact we haven't heard anything, we know as much about her concussion as we know about hugo chavez. this is an open society. she is secretary of state. disappeared and let us know about her condition. apartment from that, what is astonishing here is how little interest the press has in the continuing story and the continuing story is that everything you hear about benghazi affair is not true. the latest thing with four people will be responsible and accountable. we learned a week later as steve indicates who would have followed up on this, you know? people have to be held accountable. they're done, they are gone. they're not gone. the first assassination of ambassador in 30 years? anything that turned out to be so? she has to go before the congress. she is in charge. >> bob corker, the ranking member of the senate foreign affairs committee said she must testify. other republicans vie to hold up the n
prominent. the fact that john mccain now loves the guy when in the 1970s the two of them would have been on polar opposite sides of the vietnam war. but because they're senators, they're best buds. i bring that up because jack reid who is a senator from rhode island, a lot of people like him, and they know he wants to be defense secretary. he is not someone who has been mentioned this time. someone like michelle flornoye who is already at defense and others are more likely. >> great to see you. thanks so much. >>> national rifle association head wayne lap pierre is not backing down. maybe you watched this on i on meet the press" over the weekend when he had a chance to soften his organization's message, and he chose not to. >> if senator feinstein's ban is that going to pass? >> i think that is a phony piece of legislation, and i do not believe it will pass for this reason. it's all not on lies that have been found out. >> nra consultant asa hutchinson, a former republican congressman, is also standing from arguing that there's no need to re-evaluate the nation's gun laws. >> what i will

to bin laden with senator john mccain speaking out last year before the film even hit the nation's theaters. >> i think it's supremely unfair to the men and women in our intelligence community and military who labored f a decade to locate obama bin laden to claim falsely that they only succeeded because we used torture. >> mccain with senators dianne feinstein and carl levin wrote to sony complaining "zero dark thirty" has the potential to shape american public opinion in a disturbing and misleading manner. they asked sony to consider correcting the impression that c cia's use of interrogation techniques led to the capture of osama bin laden. she said showing the techniques was vital to the form. >> i think it was important for us to tell a true story. it's controversial but it's part of the history. >> part of history perhaps but only future historians might know how accurate holiday's first look at the search for bin laden actually is. for "cbs this morning," john blackstone, cbs news. >> sony hat nos responded. senior correspondent john miller who once interviewed bin laden is
